Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Do I need to be present for closing?

No, we can handle everything by overnight mail and e-mail when possible.  However, unfortunately electronic signatures will not be acceptable for most closing documents.

  • How do I send money for closing? 

 Anything over $5,000 require for closing must be by wire transfer.  Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) will not be accepted.  We will only mail wire instructions.  We will never e-mail them.   Anything between $500 and $5,000 can be by certified check made payable to Wenzel & Wenzel Trust Account.

  • How much will my closing cost? 

Every closing is different.  Please call for a quote for the particular service you require.

  • How soon can I expect funds after closing? 

Please note that in North Carolina, we may not disburse until the documents are recorded at the Register of Deeds. Once all money is received by the settlement agent, all documents are signed, and any approvals from lends are obtained, we will submit documents to be recorded.  This process may take a few hours after you have signed, so please prepare accordingly.

  • Do I need a title search or title insurance? 

If you are getting a loan, your lender will require both.  Otherwise, you may have the option to not have a title search done or title insurance obtained.  Our law firm always suggests that you proceed only with a title search and title insurance and will be happy to discuss your particular situation with you.
